Recipe Ingredients:

2 green onions and tops, sliced
4 large cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter
16 ounces Jalapeño Jack cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 to 4 tablespoons milk
8 chorizo (spicy sausage), casing removed, cooked until browned, drained, crumbled
2 tablespoons chopped tomato
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
16 flour tortillas, warm

Cooking Directions:

  1. Sauté onions and garlic in butter in medium saucepan until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cheese; cook, covered, over medium to medium-low heat until cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in milk if mixture is too thick.
  2. Spoon cheese into bowl or small chafing dish; sprinkle with chorizo, tomato and cilantro. Spoon about 2 tablespoons mixture on each tortilla and roll up.

Tips:

  • It may be necessary to add more milk if mixture is too thick for dipping.
  • Cooked ground beef, seasoned to taste with taco seasoning, can be substituted for the chorizo.
